Home / Intelligence / Scientific Publications / Risk Factors Associated with Recurrence and Corticosteroid-Associated Adverse Events in Patients with Recurrent Pericarditis

Recurrent pericarditis (RP) occurs in up to 30% of acute pericarditis patients with some experiencing multiple recurrences and/or complications. Treating RP with corticosteroids can increase adverse events, risk of recurrence, and potentially healthcare resource utilization. This retrospective study examined risk factors for recurrence and corticosteroid-related adverse events (CS-AEs) among RP patients.
